BlackBerry 10 Theme Coming for jQuery Mobile Thanks to RIM Devs

Jquery Mobile Github

RIM has seen the light when it comes to web technology and HTML5 and they are chasing after it full force with contributions to projects like PhoneGap, WebKit, and more. They announced on their DevBlog that one of their own developers, Jason Scott (@JsonScott), has been made an official committer to the jQuery Mobile project. His main responsibility will be to ensure the jQuery Mobile experience on BlackBerry is the best possible and other general fixes.

What is even more interesting is a project coming from Jason and his team. They announced that his team will be releasing a theme for jQuery Mobile to give it the BlackBerry 10 look and feel. They do not indicate if this will be based off their work from BBUI.js but if so it should look very nice! Keep up the good work!

  1. And fyi, Sencha will also release a BB10 theme ;)
    I’m glad to hear that RIM is finally seeing the light and realising that cross-platforms devs will probably first use tools they know before investing time into BlackBerry specific UI frameworks.
    I really hope that those themes will cheat the same way bbui does (cascades), so that animations will be smooth!
